Mumbai: Rushes of Aamir Khan’s latest production ‘Delhi Belly’ are out and going by the film's recently unveiled song ‘Bhaag DK Bose…’, the flick appears to an absolute winner. While Aamir is busy shooting Reema Kagti’s next, he’s leaving no stone unturned to promote ‘Delhi Belly’. Aamir just can`t stop raving about how entertaining and fun the film is.

So much in love was Aamir with the script of the film that he even wanted to be one among the three main characters in the ‘Delhi Belly’. The ‘perfectionist’ said he wanted to play the fat guy played by Kunal Roy Kapoor.

However, the actor had to curb the idea as he would have to gain an enormous amount of weight for the role which he never wanted.

Talking to media recently, Aamir said, “I loved the script and especially the character played by Kunal (the sardar Nitin in the film). It`s a total fun character and I thought it would be a great experience playing such a role. But then I decided against it.”

“Moreover” Aamir said, “The character in the film had to be fat and sloppy. It meant that if I want to play Nitin, I would have to gain a lot of weight. I didn`t want to gain weight and let go of a body I have worked hard to achieve.”

Well, Mr Khan, hope this is not another of yours marketing strategy to promote your film?
